I have a question about a basic 12 bar blues.Let say I am wanting to solo in the key of "A" over a 12 bar blues using minor pentatonic.

Generally would I use an A minor pentatonic throughout the progression or Should I be switching to a "D minor" and "E minor" pentatonic on the respective "chords" in the progression?

Which works best?

You can solo throughout using A minor pentatonic or A minor "blues" scale which is similar.
That is the easiest approach which will work well. Just make sure to land on strong notes when chord changes occur (try landing on chord tones).
